Best Treatment for Keloid Burn Scar on Hands?

I have 10-year-old 2nd/3rd degree burn scars on my hands. Some skin specialists said that they are keloids. Is there any treatment for such scars? If so, what is the best treatment for burn scars on Asian skin?

On your hands, you may benefit from using the gel sheeting that is prescribed here in the states. I don't know what is available in your area but try to find a dermatologist who can possibly give you some samples so that you can "try before you buy".

Good luck to you.
